Been coming to the Commander for many years! Tried another when they had no room and realized we have to plan earlier if we want a great vacation! We will NEVER make that mistake again! Wonderful staff, too!

Honestly because of the name "motel" I thought I was taking a step down from my normal stay at a well reviewed high end hotel- I thought the worst .. like some "working women" and havoc . But let me tell you I eating crow! The location is well kept and peacefully. Suzanne at the desk is a sweet as... More

My family has been coming to this hotel since the 70s. I have only been coming since 2005. The staff are professional and helpful. I am currently staying at the hotel and we had a severe thunderstorm come through. The staff was helpful and though there was some damage, the maintenance staff had it repaired before most people even noticed.... More

My friend and I stayed here in July 2015 and are booked again for this July. We don't even look at any of the other places in Wildwood Crest because this place is the best and has everything we need. It's clean, the people are great and the location can't be beat. Your room is literally steps to the beach!... More

This is my go-to motel for a quieter getaway with my wife. Been going there for close to 30 years and still owned and greeted by the same family. Although very much kid friendly, it is in a quieter location of the Wildwoods located directly on a pristine beach. The Motel is kept METICULOUSLY clean. This time we stayed in... More

This was my first time staying at this motel and I was very impressed with the friendly and efficient staff. Also the room was spotless and had a very nice view of the sundeck and ocean. The evening trolley stops right out front and drops you off at the boardwalk, very convenient. Even the morning complimentary coffee is delicious! The... More
